Today was a dog day. Deanna and I, call this a dog day, because we take our two dogs named Story (an Aushire) 1/2 Australian Terrier and 1/2 Yorkshire Terrier and Princess Hannah (a Pekingese) everywhere with us. When I say everywhere, I mean everywhere. Our first stop was Starbucks at 8450 Elk Grove Blvd in Elk Grove, using our gift card, we picked up on a Chai Tea grande frappachino. The lady serving us was so nice and gave Hannah and Story a cup full of whip creme. After Starbucks, a stop at Walmart for snacks; Shell Station for gas; Adalbertos for lunch – I had the delicious beef tamale and Deanna had a bean and cheese burrito. To make sure that the dogs didn’t have to go to the bathroom, we stopped at Elk Grove Community Center to walk the dogs. They also got a walk at Starbucks, before heading 1 hour up the road to The Bayley House.

This is What “The Land of Glittering Dreams” Website Has to Say:
“The Bayley House was built by Alcander J. Bayley as a hotel to serve travelers on the transcontinental railroad which had planned to follow a route John C. Fremont had mapped in the 1840’s through the Pilot Hill area.
The Bayley House opened on May 15th, 1862 with an invitation only reception. People came to view the 24 rooms, the ballroom, the observatory on top with a view of the surrounding mountains and Sacramento Valley, and the terraced gardens which surrounded the hotel. But the hotel was doomed to failure because the railroad changed it’s route to run through Auburn and the Bayley House became known as Bayley’s Folly. The building served as a private residence until the 1960s.
The building has been in a continuing state of decline. The pillars and veranda are gone and most windows and doorways are covered by plywood. When we visited in November 2002, we were disappointed to see much of the exterior wall on the north side had collapsed leaving the interior totally exposed to the elements. But happily money was raised and the wall was repaired. There is still hope that the building will be restored. The Georgetown Divide Recreation District (owner of the Bayley House) is raising money to restore the building for use as a museum related to the area’s history. Their web site for the project is www.bayleyhouse.net. The web site also has more history about the Bayley House. The Land of Glittering Dreams™ – www.glittering.com “
Special Note from Paul: When Deanna spotted the Bayley Goat Man is the time, I felt a finger jab me in the ribs. I thought that was very odd and during that time, I was trying to provoke some activity. On one of the trees, we saw a hangman’s rope and we can only wonder why a hangman’s rope would be on one of the trees?
